Birthplace: Sheboygan, WI
Education: Marketing and Business Administration Degree from Lakeland College
Experience: I started selling running shoes at The Fast Foot in Sheboygan when I was 14. While I have done some other things along the way (Ecology Sports in Kohler/Sister Bay and product manager for Dale of Norway) I have always stayed close to the shoe business. I started working with my good friend, Jim Bronson at The Athlete's Foot in 1995. As Jim began to contemplate retirement a couple years ago, it became a natural transition to take over the business.
Hobbies: Running and Nordic Skiing, Cross Country and Track Coach at University School of Milwaukee, Coach/Advisor for many runners of all ages and abilities - from middle school to marathoners, Music
